The Bullet Blaster is Bowser Jr.'s unlockable kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It is shaped like a Banzai Bill.

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

Like Diddy Kong's Barrel Train, the Bullet Blaster is one of the fastest lightweight karts in the game. It is also the lightest kart in the game, and can be knocked around by any other kart of any weight class. Another one of the kart's good stats is its acceleration, which is lower than the regular lightweight kart, but still better than a heavyweight. Its horn makes the sound of a noisemaker. The Bullet Blaster is unlocked by completing the Special Cup in 50cc.

In terms of its actual stats, while the Bullet Blaster does have a three star acceleration stat, it is one of the weaker accelerating karts, equalling the Red Fire, Turbo Birdo, and Parade Kart. Also, its top speed is tied with that of the Barrel Train, DK Jumbo, and Piranha Pipes. Lastly, although the Bullet Blaster is a lightweight kart, it is tied with the Koopa King for having the slowest off-road speed in the game.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Bullet Blaster in Mario Kart Tour

The Bullet Blaster returns in Mario Kart Tour. Its design has been updated to be more in line with the Banzai Bill's appearances post-New Super Mario Bros., but with the same yellow rotor as in Double Dash!!. It appears to be equipped with the Roller tires, being a mix of its appearances from Mario Kart 7 (black tire treads), Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (yellow center). The game also introduces a red variant, named the Bull's-Eye Banzai. Both versions of the kart increase score and boost time from Rocket Starts and share the Normal classification, but are treated as two separate vehicles.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Bullet Blaster also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker. When used on a fighter in The Subspace Emissary, it increases their launch power by 50 points.
